Visual elements

According to my comprehension, I create some scenes to express my feelings.

Poems usually sustenance poet's emotionand his stories. Chinese ancient poetry is like a boundless sea with its charms. As a result, different people have different ideas, when you read the poem.

When I read the poem I think " Hao fang " is some goods. In ancient Chinese, people think " 天地玄黄, 宇宙洪荒 "("Baraka, the universe. The darkling skies and yellow earth. Amid great chaos had their birth.)

Something is big ,something is small.

In my mind “ Hao fang ” is a state of mind. Chinese has a memory that moderation. Lao Zi (philosopher in the Spring and Autumn Period, founder of Taoism)said that: 上善若水,水善利万物而不争,上善若水, 水善利万物而不争,处众人之所恶.

The highest goodness is like water. Water benefits all things and does not compete. It stays in the lowly places which others despise. Therefore it is near The Eternal. Water like “Haofang” iron fist in a velvet glove.
